Hi! I’m Ben and I live in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire with my fiancée Alice and our daughter Poppy. I’ve been a professional photographer since I left university in 2006. In that time I’ve worked for newspapers, magazines and I’ve been fully freelance since 2015. My work has been published around the world in print, on billboards, book covers and on too many websites to count. In 2012 I won ‘Photographer of the Year’ at the EDF Energy East of England Media Awards, having finished runner up the year before.

I began photographing weddings 10 years ago and it’s been a real privilege and honour to be involved in every single one. I love capturing real moments packed with emotion, and creating a set of images that reflect the happiness and warmth of the day. It’s not uncommon for me to wipe away a tear behind my camera during the ceremony or speeches! Every couple and every wedding is unique, and I aim to tell your story in a creative and imaginative way.
I’m lucky enough to shoot around 25 weddings a year, and while I am a wedding photographer in Cambridgeshire, I also regularly shoot at awesome venues across Norfolk, Essex, London, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and further afield in the UK. As well as photographing weddings, I also shoot for various businesses and private clients, and write features and blogs for a number of leading photography magazines and websites.
When I’m not with my camera I love spending time with my partner and daughter, especially weekends away by the coast. I’ve always got music playing and enjoy the guitar and going to gigs when I can. I follow football, but now in my mid-30s my chances of making it as a professional are slim. I’m keen on travelling and exploring new places. In 2012 I took the train from Peterborough to Tokyo. Just because. I’m a big history geek too enjoying both books and metal detecting to dig up old treasures.
